The devil is in the details. The light touch of pale and wheat malts. Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe and Chinook hops. Massive hops additions imbue a wicked bitterness and the intense floral aromas of citrus and lush tropical fruit. Hoppy, hoppy, rich and golden.

Tasted on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. It poured a almost clear amber with an off white head and fairly solid lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Well hopped taste with a slightly bitter finish.

Slightly cloudy deep golden with a thin Rocky white head. Lovely aroma with piney and leafy-floral hops, and a little bitter grassy undertone with a bit of grapefruit pith. Spicy and bitter grassy flavor with some bitterness throughout and much pithiness, but itís got loads of old world biscuity blondeness as a base. Very bright and bitter and bold while retaining a bit of old germain charm.

Draught@ Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor. Rich orange color with small frothy white head, faint hops aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet taste with strong floral hops flavor, orange peel in the background, long hoppy finish.. Deliciously hoppy!

12oz bottle (bottled on 6/11/14) - nose is grapefruit. Sip adds a malty backbone. OK, OK. Iím disappointed by this. All of the others Iíve tried from North Peak have been awesome. I guess I raised the bar too high or maybe Jolly Pumpkin canít brew very well, or both or something else or a combination. Wife loves it and she can have it. Just checked the date - that might be why this is off.

Draft at Dutchís in August 2014 from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice mix of resiny, citrus, floral hops, toasted bready malts, a splash of caramel, moderate bitterness, this was definitely better than expected.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light medium amber with a generous frothy white head, constellations of lace. Taste is big-bodied dark fruit and malt that includes biscuit and mown hay in the palate before strong alcohol shows up at the finish. Nicely balanced, good malt and good hop presence. A solid winner.

On draught in a tulip. Nose is nice mix of fruity and grassy hops. Easy to drink mix of great hop flavors throughout, would not say this is wickedly bitter, bit fairly so.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange peel, lemon, ethanol, hints of grass, bread, some caramel, touch of white fruit. Taste is a mix of bread, grass, caramel, toffee, hints of orange, floor wax, finishing sweet, goopy, alcoholic.

It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of spicy hops, some malts and floral notes. The taste was of a good malt base, lots of hops, some citrus, tasty florals and a hint of grass. Very nice.
